At Tech Etch, we use a photo-etching process to manufacture light-gauge metal parts. This process allows us to create metal components with exacting tolerances that cannot be created through another process.
All configurations, tolerances, and dimensions are functions of the metal thickness. The guide on this page goes over the practical limitations of the photo-etching process. Here, you’ll learn the limitations and requirements for slots, spaces, holes, and construction dimensions of your metal parts.
In certain cases, these limitations can be exceeded but with a reduction in yield percentage. The Figures to the left offers a visual representation of these features. Speak with our team for design assistance when you need to go beyond these limitations.
